    Default Cricut woes

    I am really not into my cricut. I almost feel like it's more trouble than it's worth to use it on a page anymore. I guess it'd be better if I had more carts than the two it came with, but there are so many other things that are more important right now, ya know? So....maybe someone could tell me if there are cart specific sites that show ideas for things to do with the two carts I do have? Maybe it's just that I'm getting bored with what I have... Dunno.

    I'm sorry! You haven't received your free cartridge yet? I'd call Cricut!!

    Looking on those sites has helped me so much. I lurk on there, I hardly ever post, but it helps to see what you CAN do with the carts. I think the reason I love my Cricut so much is b/c I can make better looking cards. I know if I had more carts, I would be even happier with it. But more carts, means more $ and that's just something we don't have right now. I wanted 2 carts, but I went with Wild Card, b/c I wanted symbols and a font. I wish I could help you out more.

    Oh, and I would email them about the cart too. My sister got her's, but it was a while back.

    Good to hear I'm not alone Liz. I bet if we had more carts it'd be more fun...but man they're expensive. I tried emailing them about free carts and haven't heard...but thanks so much for the links Charys...that will help I bet.

    I saw on craigs list some program that said never buy another cart I guess it is some progam for your computer that lets you download anything you want. Not sure how legal it is??? I guess it is your cricut right?

    I've seen a program like this before. You can design anything you want, and you plug it into the cricut and it cuts what you design. I've thought about getting that.

    Carrie- I haven't gotten my carts from the rebate either. I never got a reply from my e-mail either. Let me know if you hear something. I get alot of ideas from the cricut board. I will tell you the 2 we got with our machine are my least favorite!

    Those carts do kinda suck. Home accents is kinda cool to use behind things or WITH something else. Could you sell yours or trade them for something else. I bet if you posted something on craigslist you might get a bite. Maybe someone else wants those ones but doesnt like one of the animal ones or soemthing. Also try ebay...I was leary about it at first but I got paper pups for 28.00 with free shipping!! I would NEVER buy a cart at full price or even on sale at the craft stores with what ive seen them at on ebay, craigslist, etc. You have to watch for them to be cheep on ebay and keep your bidding low and be prepared to loose alot. Just a thought.
